15th Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems (TAROS 2014)
September 1-3 2014
University of Birmingham, U.K.


3rd Call for Papers - Paper Submission Deadline (Extended): 02 May 2014
Springer will publish the conference proceedings in the LNAI/LNCS Series
Springer UK are sponsoring the conference Best Paper Prize.

TAROS (Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems) is aimed at the presentation and
discussion of the latest results and methods in autonomous robotics
research and applications. TAROS offers a friendly environment for robotics
researchers and industry to take stock and plan future progress. TAROS 2014
is being hosted by the School of Computer Science at the University of
Birmingham and will be held in the new Library of Birmingham.

TAROS welcomes senior researchers and research students alike, and
specifically provides opportunities for research students and young
research scientists to present their work to the scientific community. As
in previous years, all accepted papers will be included in the printed
proceedings, to be published by Springer in the LNAI/LNCS series (
www.springer.com/lncs). Authors of selected papers will be invited to
submit extended versions to a companion journal issue.

TAROS is a platform for robotics researchers with a wide range of interests
from the UK, Europe and worldwide. TAROS welcomes paper submissions on a
wide range of topics related to the principles and practice of robotics.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) are sponsoring an
invited public lecture (speaker tba) in addition to plenary speakers.
Springer are sponsoring the Best Paper Prize.

TAROS 2014 invites both full papers and extended abstracts. All
contributions will be refereed. Full papers are invited from researchers at
any stage in their career but should present significant findings and
advances in robotics research; more preliminary work would be better suited
to extended abstract submission. Full papers will be accepted for either
oral presentation (single track) or poster presentation. Extended abstracts
will be accepted for poster presentation only.

Submissions of scientific papers are invited in any aspect of contemporary
robots research or application, but not limited to, the following topics
and related areas:

- Advanced applications of autonomous robots (industrial and research)
- Advanced materials and techniques
- Advanced medical robotics, robots for surgery, assistive robotics,
Service robotics
- Applications development, hardware issues, devices and techniques,
advanced sensors and actuators
- Autonomous assembly robotics, Autonomous vehicles
- Bio-mimetic and bio-inspired robotics, Bio-hybrid robotic systems,
Evolutionary robotics
- Cognitive robotics, Developmental robotics, Personal robotics, Robot
communication and language
- Ethical and societal issues in robotics, Robots in education, the arts
and entertainment
- Flying robots (unmanned- and micro- air vehicles), Space and planetary
- Humanoid robotics, Human-Robot interaction and interfaces, Legged robots
- Safety, Verification and Validation for Robotic Applications
- Swarm robotics, Collective robots, Field robotics
- Learning and adaptation, Long-term interaction and operation, Intelligent
- Modelling and analysis of robot models, Modular reconfigurable robots
- Navigation, localization, map building and path planning, Analysis of
robot-environment interaction
- Robot autonomy including energy self-sufficiency, Robot control
architectures, Robot vision, sensing and perception
